Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Introduces the concepts and historical development of astronomy, presents a course on positional measurement and celestial mechanics, and describes the techniques and instrumentation of astronomical observation and measurement. With its companion volume, Astronomy: Structure of the Universe, this textbook meets the need for a comprehensive and systematic treatment of astronomy. The physical and mathematical groundwork so often omitted from other textbooks is included, together with many worked examples, problems with answers and a selection of practical projects. Intended for undergraduates taking first or second-year courses in astronomy, those studying the subject within a liberal arts course and advanced amateur astronomers seeking a more rigorous approach to their subject.
